Overfed and Undernourished: You Are What You Eat

drive-thruAccess to nutritionally depleted, technologically created, chemically treated “food” has many of us taking in thousands of empty calories, each and every day, without realizing the cost.

The saying, “you are what you eat” carries a serious measure of truth. If you’re like most people, you’re overfed and undernourished. And when it comes to your weight and overall health, that’s no laughing matter.

• These are the foods that are the root cause of many illnesses and diseases.  Continue reading “Overfed and Undernourished: You Are What You Eat”
